Jerry was born on November 2, 1939, in Medicine Hat. He grew up in the Box Springs district north of Medicine Hat where he developed his passion for rodeo. One of the highlights of his life was winning the steer riding championship at the Calgary Stampede in 1955 at the age of 15. In the early 1960’s, Jerry ranked as one of the top four bull riders in Canada. An avid sports fan, he was also an accomplished amateur boxer. Jerry fought in many matches around the province and he was a fierce competitor every time he entered the ring. He was a career employee with the City of Medicine Hat Public Works Department and sidelined as an auctioneer with Ellis Auction for over 45 years. Jerry’s favorite pastimes included going for a good cup of coffee and happy hour around the city. Family wish to extend their appreciation to Dr. Khan and nurses on the 5th floor at the hospital for providing continuing care over the past few years.
